There was a time, back in the olden days, when a trip to a “spa” basically meant taking a bath in hot mineral water.
Soothing? Yes. Relaxing? Yes. Much more of an experience than simply taking a hot bath? Not really.
Oh those silly people of olden days. How little they knew about the spa experience.
At Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa (again we point out that Spa is in our name) the spa experience is so much more than sitting in a hot pool out in the desert somewhere.
We exfoliate, massage, pamper, moisturize, rehydrate, decrease stress, repair skin damage, increase circulation and so much more. And yes, we have pools.
We have so much going on in our spas and facilities—Spa Toccare, Immersion Spa, The Salon and The Barbershop—that we’ve set aside an entire week we’re dubbing the Borgata Spa Experience from October 19-24.
Look for specials and a series of spa events (make-up demonstrations, skin analysis, etc.) all week long.
We’re fast approaching the one-year anniversary of online gaming in New Jersey and at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. Yep, it was in November 2013 when BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com first went live and since then, we’ve crowned tons of winners.

At this point, the truth is out there about longtime comedian Bob Saget, who appears October 25 at the Borgata Music Box.
Yeah, yeah, he played good-natured dad Danny Tanner on the hit TV sitcom “Full House” from 1987 to 1995. And he was also the host of “America’s Funniest Home Videos” from 1989 to 1997. Since then he’s been a game-show host, the voice of narrator Ted Mosby on “How I Met Your Mother” and a regular on “Entourage.”
So that’s a pretty family friendly resume. But if you think that you’ll see a family friendly stand-up act from Saget at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in October, you haven’t been paying attention (the “Entourage” credit should have tipped you off).
Saget’s blue comedy and obscenity-laced stand-up act is as famous as anything he ever did as the loving dad Danny Tanner.
Just google “America’s Filthiest Home Videos” if you don’t believe us to see a short Saget recently did on the web series Speakeasy from Made Man. But make sure you know what you’re getting into. “Blue” may be too subtle a description.
You may already know that koi represents prosperity. But you haven’t seen anything quite like this. In Water Dragons, our new game from IGT, you’re transported to a world unlike anything you’ve seen before – one where wealth is in abundance thanks to rewarding pearls and koi that comes in a variety of colors.
You’ll love the bonus round in Water Dragons because it’s really easy to play. When you land on three bonus scatter symbols you’ll automatically earn 15 free spins. You can also retrigger the bonus for up to 225 spins. As you play, collect pearls to turn a colored koi wild on the reels and qualify for even bigger payouts!

Prefer land to water? Try Savannah Sunrise, our latest online slot game that sets you loose in an African safari. Spotting the right animals nets you big payouts, especially if an elephant appears through your binoculars. Giraffes, zebras and baboons are lucrative too.
Here’s a poorly kept secret about Atlantic City. For all of our fun-in-the-sun summer reputation, the fall may be the best time to “DO AC”.
The weather stays nice well into October, the ocean stays warm even longer and the city is still cooking with shows and events right into the winter and beyond.
Leading that charge is Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. The outside temperature may start cooling, but Borgata is still heating up with a full lineup of Borgata Nightlife events, great comedians at the Borgata Comedy Club, great dining and four-star shows at the Borgata Event Center and Music Box.
So if you missed that summer getaway (or even if you didn’t), a fall getaway to Borgata can be just as great. And even more so with our special Fall Getaway Package.
Ah October. It’s the season of the pumpkin and their friendly orange glow is everywhere.
They’re on our porches, in our window displays and gathered in bunches at road-side stands. And they’re mild fall flavor is spicing up everything from pies to our double latte grandes.
And, of course, they make for a great facial.
Yes, you read right—a great facial.
Pumpkins, it turns out, are really, really good for you. They’re filled with vitamin A, E and C and loaded with powerful enzymes that help cleanse the skin. As a matter of fact, that whole orange glow thing comes from carotenoids, wrinkle-fighting plant pigments that help neutralize free radicals in the skin, keeping them from damaging the cells that fast-forward aging.
Plus, pumpkin has hydrating properties and are a good source of fiber.
But back to the benefits for your skin, something we at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa know only too well at Spa Toccare and Immersion Spa. Our October spa specials feature a healthy dose of this seasonal treat, not because it’s seasonally trendy—you can get that effect just with a couple of jack o’ lanterns—but because pumpkin is a skin-cleansing, wrinkle-fighting dynamo.
Halloween is just around the corner! We’re providing tips on everything you need to throw a ghoulish Haunted House party this Halloween – including recipes, decorating tips, and more!
Making an entrance…
- Adorn your front yard or walkway with foam tombstones to mimic a graveyard.
- If space allows, place a rocking chair just outside of the front door and cover the chair and surrounding area in fake cobwebs.
- Hang tattered cheesecloth at the front door to create the effect of weathered drapery for guests to walk through.
- Place a plastic or foam skull in a glass cake display and leave at eye level just inside the front door to welcome guests as they enter the party.
